Trudeau Government Mum on Confessed Terror Recruit Living in Toronto

Confessed Terror Recruit Living in Toronto

OTTAWA — Conservative MPs are calling for action against a Canadian−born, self−described terror recruit reportedly living in Toronto, but Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale says he can’t comment on the case for security reasons.

A Canadian who calls himself Abu Huzaifa al−Kanadi appeared on a recent New York Times podcast, describing how he executed people while working with Islamic State militants in Syria.

The matter arose in question period in the Commons, with Conservative MP Candice Bergen citing media reports that say the man is in Toronto.

She wants the government to take action, but Goodale says he won’t discuss operational details in public.

He says Canadian security and police agencies are doing everything necessary to keep people safe.

CBC News reported last year that Abu Huzaifa was questioned extensively by RCMP and CSIS, but has not been charged.
